EPA, DOT and OSHA require numerous plans and procedures that your facility must develop and implement. These may include hazardous materials and hazardous waste management, notification procedures, security plans, and emergency procedures. Environmental Resource Center can evaluate your facility to determine which plans are applicable to your operations, develop the required plans and procedures, and then assist you with their implementation. An environmental audit is one of the many tools available from Environmental Resource Center to aid your facility in identifying and complying with relevant federal, state or local regulations.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) - Environmental Resource Center will determine if your facility needs a storm water permit and storm water pollution prevention plan. We will identify sources of storm water pollutants monitoring and sampling requirements and document best management practices applicable to your facility. We can also help you determine if you qualify for a certification of no exposure. Each industrial or manufacturing facility must either obtain a Stormwater Permit or submit a "No Exposure Certification."
Spill Pollution Control and Countermeasures Plan (SPCC) - Most facilities that store 1,320 gallons or more of petroleum or non-petroleum oils are required to have written SPCC plans. Environmental Resource Center can prepare your SPCC plan or update an existing plan to keep you in compliance with all federal, state and local regulations.
Contingency Plans - Under the hazardous waste regulations, if you are a large quantity generator of hazardous waste or if you have a permit for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste, you must have a contingency plan. Environmental Resource Center will prepare your plan in compliance with 40 CFR 265.52.
Risk Management Plans (RMP) - If you have any of 139 regulated substances onsite that are above their threshold quantities, you must have a risk management plan that includes a hazard assessment, prevention program, and emergency response program. Environmental Resource Center can help you develop and implement a comprehensive and effective RMP. We will evaluate your facility operations, complete a hazard assessment, and assist you with your prevention and emergency response programs.
Hazard Communication Written Program - Lack of a written hazard communication program is one of the most frequently cited OSHA violations. If your employees are exposed to OSHA hazardous chemicals, a hazcom plan is mandatory. Environmental Resource Center can compile your labeling, MSDS, employee information and training, hazwoper training, and contractor information programs into an effective written plan. If you don't have these programs already, we can develop them for you.
Site Safety & Health Plans - Safety and health plans that may be required for your facility include OSHA lockout / tagout procedures, bloodborne pathogen protection, respiratory protection, hearing conservation, personal protective equipment, confined space entry, emergency and fire prevention, and many others. These plans are necessary to protect the health and safety of personnel who may come into contact with hazardous waste or other hazardous substances. We will assist you in collecting background information about your site and the chemicals potentially involved to develop plans that meet all applicable regulatory requirements.
Employee Emergency and Fire Prevention Plans - We will examine your facility, assess potential emergency situations, and prepare plans that will ensure employee safety in an emergency or fire in accordance with applicable regulations [29 CFR 1910.38].
Process Safety Management - We will implement our 15-step approach to help you and your employees in their efforts to prevent or mitigate any hazardous chemical releases that could lead to a catastrophe in the workplace or the surrounding community.
Integrated Contingency Plans - We can combine the numerous hazardous materials, emergency response, and safety plans required for your facility into one functional plan while eliminating the confusion and minimizing duplication and expense of preparing multiple plans.
